For those readers who liked Dussia, here she is again. This time in colored paper and colored pencils.
Elena claims she smiles sometimes! Try and see whether you feel the same way by looking at the photograph.
The major point when using colored paper in your artwork is to remember that the color of the paper sets the mood for the entire drawing. It’s almost as if the essence of your painting or drawing is set even before you lay pencil to paper.
In the picture above, Elena has neatly harmonized the color of the paper with that of the drawing itself, thereby giving a nice easy impression.
